I like how the illustrator included a map. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose go many places like the library and Dinkís house, and I can follow everywhere they go on the map. I also like how the illustrator put a picture of all five letters on a page. That way I can look there instead of picturing it in my head. I like when Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose all went to the library to find out what the stamp was worth. They needed to find out why Doris wanted the letters. I thought it was interesting because Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose looked in books then in newspapers to find out the information which made it very interesting.
I recommend this book to grades second to fourth. I donít think first graders will get it because there are a lot of people in the book and that will mix up their brains. This book is for kids who like mysteries a lot because this is a mysterious book.
